The course weaves 13.1 miles within the boundaries of the 2 square miles that are the Town and Villages of Pelham and Pelham Manor (no small feat). The course is on open roads and will be well-marked with spray chalk, route arrows and course marshals.

3. Chester Park
4. The Sanborn Map Building
5. The Highbrook Highline (our very own greenway on an old railbed) (http://www.highbrookhighline.com/)(we run under it)
6. Some crazy-ass hills (Harmon, Grant, East 2nd Street)

8. Four Corners and Huguenot Memorial Church (water stop / aid station!)
9. Shore Park (water stop / aid station!)
10. The Esplanade (where you can see everyone who is faster than you coming up the other side and hear some great music by local bands).
